I graduated from Sheffield in Oct. 2001. I had a wonderful time and learned a lot. I recommend Sheffield to everyone I talk to. I have an interview tomorrow at Skywest.

In all seriousness, if you really, really want a dispatcher job…go to Sheffield. There is really no other way to lock in a job when you walk thru an employer’s door. Sheffield does not teach you how to take the test they teach you the job!

I’ve been meaning to send an update for a long time. I was one of your graduates from the first class of 2000. I’m at ——- Airlines in (Tennessee) and have been here for almost a year and a half. I am one of the few people who went to Sheffield in our dispatch office and I am very happy I made that decision. I see other dispatchers who went to other “schools” and am amazed they even passed an FAA oral exam. There is a definite difference in the knowledge. Thanks again for everything. I’m sorry it’s taken me this long to write. If you would like any information on — — for your students let me know. We need quality dispatchers and I would like to see new people come from Sheffield rather than other schools. Again, thanks for everything.

Hi Ron, Eric, Bruce, I’ll never forget you and this school that made me know myself, that gave me not only the information and knowledge to succeed in this job, but also the courage to always trust myself and face all the problems I’ll face in my life. You were my instructors and my family at the same time. I thank you for everything and hope to see you soon.

With all my best regards and wishes,

B. Ghanem

Sheffield note – a testimony that our course is not a “flash cards/highlighter-only test prep” course. We prepare you to tackle the dispatch profession head-on following graduation.

Ron or Eric,

This evening I tried out my new ID and password. I visited the graduate section at your web site. Typical of Sheffield…. A fantastic job folks! I’ll visit frequently.

Graduated July 99. My update – After dispatching and flying at Chalk’s for over a year, I landed another great job. TSA (d/b/a Trans World Express & US Airways Express), hired me to fly the EMB RJ. I started there in May but was furloughed in October. In the meantime, the dispatcher ticket has come in handy again. I’m back in SoFla working at Lynx as a dispatcher. Food on the table and head still in the aviation game. Sidenote: JP D., a Sheffield classmate, was called back to fly the J41 at TSA.

Great website! Graduated at the top of the class on September 2, 1993. After completing undergraduate degree, I accepted my first dispatch job at American International Airways in November 1995. Over two years after completing your course! Rose from entry level flight follower to supervisor, then manager. All within 14 months of date of hire! Your training paved the way.
